BRING YOUR BABIES TO LOWER'S CLINIC TWINS OR TRIPLETS —he'll handle them [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Women's Weekly (1933 - 1982) — 22 July 1933

BRING YOUR BABIES TO LOWER'S CLINIC     TWINS OR TRIPLETS —he'll handle them Having had     considerable, one might say exces- sive, experience as a baby-minder, I feel called upon to give a few words of advice to young mothers who have no man in the house to palm the baby off on to. (His gram- mar is rotten, but he is very good at geography and savories.) THERE are two kinds of babies the ones that bellow and the ones that screech. The screechers   are the easiest to pacify. You merely   take the comforter, or dummy, and plunk it into the child's mouth, and the screeching stops for the time being. This is known as the Plunkett System. Bel- lowers usually succumb, after a struggle, to the Truby King method. While one holds the child's head and another its legs, the operator smears the dummy with honey, and, thrusting it into the mouth as far as it will go, makes a quick turn with the string, over the head,...

An Editorial JULY 22, 1933. NO WONDER WE HAVE NERVES [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Women's Weekly (1933 - 1982) — 22 July 1933

An Editorial JULY 22. 1933.   NO WONDER WE HAVE NERVES WHEN our nerves   are bad our   thoughts turn to places of lovely quiet. Cath- edrals. Hospital wards. Sleepy farms. The world has rushed on so fast that these sanctuaries of silence seem to be survivals of a past age. Silence and quiet are no longer part of man's natural birthright. Noise, like factory chimneys and sewer works, is part of the price we have had to pay for the civilisation we have to-day. But that price is too high. Already, protests are rising against ugly, soul-destroying building structures; and science is tackling the problem of noise. But the noise problem is not one for science alone. There is a small percent- age of people who seem to like noise. They inflict continual, unnecessary din on other people. Noisy motor cycles. Excessively loud radios. Badly trained dogs that howl all night. Sydney trams. Those are the worst offenders. What is badly wanted is an efficient a...

THE FOLLOWING GREAT MEN Sir Frederick Treves, Surgeon to the late King Edward. Sir William Osler, Professor, Oxford University. Dr. Abercrombie, F.R.C.P., London. Dr. F. Billings, President of American Medical Association. The late Dr. Maitland. Lord Dawson of Penn, His Majesty the King's Physician. AND 500 OTHER PROMINENT MEDICAL MEN over a period of half a century have proclaimed the fact that if vaseline were palatable enough to be used internally as much as it is used externally, there would be no CONSTIPATION. This to-day is POSSIBLE.     Vaseline is a pure petroleum jelly. S0 is LUBRI LAX (Reg.) As a lubricating laxative it will CURE and PREVENT every case of   CONSTIPATION, and is pleasing to the palate.

The FASHION PARADE The NEW Spring COATS and JACKETS To Brighten Up Your Old Dresses [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Women's Weekly (1933 - 1982) — 22 July 1933

by JESSIE TAIT WHEN you see the new       spring coats and   jackets you will won-   der how you ever did       without them before.       They will transform your dresses left over from last summer, and they will enable you to wear your light winter clothes all through the spring, until the warmer weather com- mences. They can be put into three groups. First, practical coats for mornings,   sports and travelling. They do up high at the neck, have square-looking shoul- ders, are fitted to the figure with a narrow belt, and have patch pockets. They usually do not have lapels, and a scarf is worn round the throat. These coats you wear over tailored frocks or two-piece costumes. The second group consists of the very new three-quarter and finger-tip length variety, falling straight from the shoul- ders, often enlarged in the back by ...

HOW TO BE BEAUTIFUL [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Women's Weekly (1933 - 1982) — 22 July 1933

HOW TO BE BEAUTIFUL By RITA MOYA. It is not every woman's good fortune to be endowed by Nature with fine features and a flawless complexion, but nowadays it is possible to make the plainest face attractive, and that, too, in the privacy of one's home. I shall endeavor to show you in the following lines how much may be done in this direction by any woman of ordinary intelligence. When facial applications are necessary, use only the pure ingredients just as they come to the chemist. The improve- ments in your appearance will be ample compensation for any trouble taken to obtain these simple and harmless beautifiers. Excessive Fat.-Of all the ways suggested for reducing I know of none so simple, so safe and so cer- tainly effective as that of taking clynol berries. They can be taken without fear of adversely affecting the health. Rather do they improve one's general health, while they reduce excessive fat in a natural manner. Do get some from your chemist to-day. About Shampooing.-Even...

New Style in SWAGGER Coats [?] Tailored Note in FROCKS OUR FASHION SERVICE [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Women's Weekly (1933 - 1982) — 22 July 1933

New Style in SWAGGER Coats :: Tailored Note in FROCKS OUR FASHION SERVICE     Patterns of these models may be obtained at the prices shown. Send your order to The Australian Women's Weekly, G.P.O., Box 4088W, Sydney, and be sure to state the size required. Give full name and ad- dress. In "between-seasons'' wear the hand of the tailor is very apparent. Its severity is softened, however, by snappy bows and puffings, while skirts are subject to gracefully flared lines. FREE PATTERN   NO wardrobe is com- plete without a swag-   ger coat. The main fea- ture of this new style of coat is its looseness. I swings loose from the shoulders, and may be anything from three quarter to full length, ac- cording to choice.

Our NEW Stock Pattern Department BABY'S LAYETTE [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Women's Weekly (1933 - 1982) — 22 July 1933

Our NEW Stock Pattern Department   BABY'S   LAYETTE IN the baby's layette there is a pattern for each garment that the new babe will want. Finishing touches are sug- gested in the illustration, but the actual patterns can be adapted at will. The pattern of the tiny yoked frock would be equally useful for baby's first flannel nighties, if made a little longer. The bonnet could be trimmed with lace or the collar of the carrying coat used with the matinee jacket. These patterns are a definite guide to size and shape when cutting, and from them the very daintiest layette can be made. Next week another number from our stock pattern department will be pub- These tiny garments are the first of the series of "stock" patterns which will be available at all times. The com- plete series includes just those utility garments that the seamstress in the home is constantly wanting. Each pat- tern is quite simple, and the instruc- tions with them are straightforward and eas...

This STAR PUBLICITY'S a HEADY Wine! [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Women's Weekly (1933 - 1982) — 22 July 1933

This STAR PUBLICITY'S   a HEADY Wine! . Are screen and stage stars just ordinary folk, or do they develop a publicity complex? They live in a ceaseless blare of publicity. Their every movement is exploited by the merciless pub- licity man. Their home life, their habits, their clothing, their romances, are all "good copy." How do they react to it all? We who remain just common place mortals are apt to view a visit to the photographer in much the same way as a visit to the dentist. If, however, we were to see ourselves on the screen in allur- ing guise, as heroes or heroines of fiction, would we overcome this natural diffidence, and live for the glamor of the spotlight, or would we become surfeited with publicity and long for quiet and obscurity? By Saide CLARK GABLE has his own horse at a convenient academy, and spends every available moment either on horseback or hunting in the surrounding mountains. Yet, when hav- ing donned his old clothes preparatory to following thi...

CONSTIPATION What a grateful radio listener writes: 21 Hamel Crescent, Earlwood. Monday, 19/6/'33. To The Australian Broadcasting Health Society. It is quite a habit of mine now to listen in to 2SM Monday evenings at 8.15, and to-night it gave me some encouragement to write, when you mentioned a person re her experience of a lubricant. Last Monday night (June 12th), after your lecture, I purchased a 2/- jar of "Lubri- Lax," took liberal doses morning and evening, and within four days the result was marvellous, and I found it necessary to reduce the doses to half. My 2/- jar is nearly finished, and it has been 2/- well spent. My next purchase will be the larger jar, 2/9, and will last longer, as I am sure a dose once a day will be all that is necessary, and I will not hesitate to recommend "Lubri-Lax" to any of my friends. I, am, a grateful listener, (Sgd.) E. HOWARD.   LUBRI-LAX (Reg.) ls the only preparation for Constipation advocated by the Anstralian Broadcasting Hea...

KATHLEEN NORRIS SAYS: [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Women's Weekly (1933 - 1982) — 22 July 1933

KATHLEEN NORRIS SAYS:   If Mother is smart she will   lose her son and her daughter-   in-law for the first year of their married life, trusting to time and   the grandchildren to restore   them to her. * * *   To marry against parents' con-   sent is always an individual mat-   ter. If the young man is steady, straight, clean, devoted; then any girl over eighteen has a per-   fect right to walk around the corner and marry him. * * *   Continuing with her work after   marriage can be done, and often   is done, by the right kind of   wife; but the risk is much   greater than the risk of getting   along on the man's salary. A   wise girl will give home the first   three or four years.

LITTLE THEATRES [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Women's Weekly (1933 - 1982) — 22 July 1933

LITTLE THEATRES   ALTHOUGH there are over 50 charac-   ters in the Independent Theatre's current production, "Once In a Life- time," thus ensuring a good attendance in any case, one does not have to be a friend or relative to enjoy this skit on the American picture industry, for it does not contain a dull moment. The plot (reminiscent of the Gordons' "Stardust In Hollywood") describes the adventures of three vaudeville actors who visit Hollywood, and tells how the "dumb" member of the trio is finally hailed as a genius, as a result of "put- ting the movies back where they were ten years ago." Everyone, with the exception of a few badly managed accents in smaller parts, pulls his or her weight, and Mr. Finley's settinigs are splendidly effective with the minimum of materials. Molly Brown, the head of the elocution school, has a par- ticularly happy gift for comedy and for creating "atmosphere"; Neville Malley very cleverly alternates between being heavy on h...

Things That Happen New Way of Ironing [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Women's Weekly (1933 - 1982) — 22 July 1933

New Way of Ironing MY sixteen-year-old neice called on me recently, and, noticing a V-   shaped burn on her chest, I inquired what had caused it. "I do wish every- body would stop asking me that!" she said. "I burnt myself with the electric iron." It appears she had tried to press the collar of her frock after she had put it on, and it is just another example of the extremes a young girl will go to, to save herself trouble. Another girl in this district burnt her stomach the same way. 10/- to"Jill," Queanbeyan. * * *     A Rough Passage A PASSENGER friend of mine on the Bondi-Bellevue Hill tram to Circular Quay, Sydney, experienced such a rough ride that, on alighting at the end of his journey, he remarked to the con- ductor . . ."Well, that is the worst part of my journey over." "Where are you going? Across the road?" said the con- ductor. "No," replied my friend with a scowl, "I'm going to England."-K.W. Sydney. * * * Cost of Gossip WHEN two ...

TELL US THINGS THAT HAPPEN [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Women's Weekly (1933 - 1982) — 22 July 1933

TELL US THINGS THAT HAPPEN In response to the large num- ber of readers who voted more space to "Things That Happen" on their Preference Voting coup- ons, it has been decided to en-   large this feature and to oflfer   special cash awards in order to encourage better entries. SO keep your eyes and ears open and ransack your memories, and you will surely see, or hear, or remember, some real incident worth sending in. First of all, however, read these con- ditions. "Things That Happen" have got to be true incidents. Items will be judged from three angles—truth, interest, and news. "Made-up" stories will not be accepted,   and the same applies to items taken   from other papers, or entries which have   been submitted previously to other journals.   Readers who submit "Things That Happen" which offend in any of these aspects will be debarred from all future competitions.

PRIVATE VIEWS "TELL ME TO-NIGHT" [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Women's Weekly (1933 - 1982) — 22 July 1933

PRIVATE VIEWS "TELL ME TO-NIGHT" IT hardly seems worth while at this stage to write a critique of "Tell Me To-night," for it is like "Cavalcade." If you want to know what "Tell Me To- night" is like, ask the person next to you. He will have seen it. If by any chance he has been out of town, how- ever, this picture is an artistic, as well as a box-office, success. Jan Kiepura's splendid voice is uplifted in ideally non- formal situations, the musical back- ground and the story blending with the utmost harmony. Magda Schneider is an unusually charming heroine, comedy abounds in the persons of Sonnie Hale, Athene Seyler, and Edmund Gwenn. The scenic effects and general direction are faultless. —Mayfair. THEATRETTE THRILLS WHERE do men go in the winter- time? After a peep into the State Newsreel Theatrette, the answer is ob- vious. No longer can we think of society divided into: (a) Man slaving in offices, (b) woman malingering at the pictures. The men malinger, too. Well, we crept down...

Intimate Jottings How Do You Like— [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Women's Weekly (1933 - 1982) — 22 July 1933

How Do You Like— BARBARA RAMSAY'S political good works, and the way she "swishes" the cards at bridge? Kath. Garvin's quaker outfit? Myrtle Beard's zippy riding in Cen- tennial Park on Sunday? Mrs. John Purves' unique oblong pastry savories? The little patch of England in a bowler hat that is John Mansfield? Mrs. Malcolm McCormick's taste for Anthropology, as shown by her becom- ing a member of the Anthropological Society? Mary Wentworth's alleged preference for Englishmen compared with their Australian brothers? Do Angels Smoke? Certain members of Newcastle's Younger Set, before appearing as angels in the pageant play, "Christus Consummator," staged at the Lyric Theatre, puffed away at cigarettes be- hind the scenes to "calm their nerves." Both the cigarettes and the nerves don't seem to quite fit one's precon- ceived idea of angels!
